Weather & Snow Characteristics
Please provide details to help us determine the weather and snowpack during the time this observation took place.

Light snow in summit while I was driving, it was clear in Cooper Landing when I passed through in the morning. Occasionally some wind would blow around, but it was calm for the majority of my ski. Snow intensity increased as the afternoon went on and made for some great skiing!

Snow surface

Fresh snow was soft and light. I could feel some old tracks below the surface in the popular meadows.
